GLM Adds to Senior Management Team

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Trade show organizer GLM has appointed Craig Dooley to senior vp and group show director for the IR Events Group, which it acquired in November.
     Working from GLM's downtown Chicago office, Dooley will report to ceo Charles McCurdy.

He will also lead the expansion of the IR Events Group through co-locations with GLM shows, including the recently announced Internet Retailer event at Surf Expo, as well as anticipated freestanding IRCEstyle events in North America, Asia and Europe.
